    remedial's Drawlings - 5/31/09 Tales of the Rusted Wrist

    Hey there guys and gals, I haven't posted on here in years. But I thought I'd fire up one of these nifty sketchbook threads because I really need to start picking up where I left off. I haven't been working on my skills with any dedication since I began school 2 years ago, and considering I go back in about a week, I'm not sure how long it will take for booze and schoolwork to distract me again.

    Anyhow- I'm just looking for any advice and commentary - I'd really like to start building my skills again and hopefully this will keep me motivated to draw as much as I can.

    A dwarf field marshal character I had originally drawn up for some half-serious mod from way back- I did this redesign to see if I could improve it.

    The toecutter from Mad Max- not so great- but I'm getting there.

    A gunfight scene I drew up- inking it might have been a bad idea.

    Bumpin' this up with some shit from my HD. My friend at school asked me to draw up some scenes with Thomas Edison in the "Land of the Lost" Tv series. I'm not sure why, but we can all dream right?

    Drew up this demon falling from grace while watching some tube. I started the outline with little trouble but then referred a some anatomy books to try and improve muscle placement etc.
    I'm hoping that if I keep this up- I'll begin to internalize this sort of thing. Looking back, I can notice my skills were improving. But back then I never actually had to motivate myself to draw or improve- it came naturally. Oh well.

    So, for the sake of nostalgia and comparison, I included a drawing from about 2.5 years ago that I drew during a high school biology class w/ no reference.

    School is a legitimate distraction, but don’t let booze get between you and your art. :-P

    So, what are your objectives with this here sketchbook?

    I really like the page with, er, Spongebob? Is the face behind the character drawn from life? It look great.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Thanks for posting Seedling! I was worrying that this thing would get overlooked.

    -I'm really just trying to get back in the habit of drawing in my leisure time- because I feel like my skills have plateaued and that's never good.

    -The face was from a picture reference- although i do prefer the challenge of drawing from life. Especially in a classroom where you have to pick out a person's facial details while they move around and change expressions.

    Well, keep up the drawing! If you don't have other live humans available to post for you, by the way, self-portraits are a great way to learn.

    Finding inspiration usually gets me wanting to draw things. These drawings looks promising. Proportions looks off at times. Make sure u get the line work accurate before jumping into the hatchings. And I'd agree with seedling to get hold of some referance. They are indeed a good way to learn.

    BEEN AGES

    So, once again I stumble back to these forums after years of silence. I feel like I've been distracted for so long- time to really focus on building my skills again.

    Recently I've been taking a crack at some of the "Daily Sketch Group" topics. I don't have a ton of experience with digital colors- so I could use some crits and tips on these ones big time! Warning: they kind of bite

    I feel so impatient when doing digital colors/painting- so I guess I just need to slow down and learn by example.

    Does anyone know of any sure-fire photoshop painting tutorials out there? I'm sure there are some on these forums- I'll check that out right after I post

    Please feel free to sling me some advice on pushing my skills! I feel so behind after looking at some of the things I see on here- great stuff!
